TWO MONTHS IN

If there's one thing that scares me at this moment, it's to have another failed relationship.

Don't get me wrong, we're not on the rocks or anything. I'm quite happy and content with what we have. I go to sleep smiling, and that same smile's pasted on my lips every time I wake up (and that's not just because I have a new PS3).

I trust the kid. I know and I feel that what he has for me, it's genuine. And right now, I'm confident that this will be a long and happy relationship. We make plans for the future (and he hasn't even graduated yet).

But being born on February, crazy insecure me sometimes linger in thought. For no reason at all, some things bother me.

Fact: he is a kid. At nineteen, when you're in love you'd think that what you have at the moment is the one thing you've wanted all your life. What if one day he wakes up, and he decides, it's not enough? I'm not enough.

It scares me to think that that day will come. And it might. But that was the risk I took the day I decided to continue being his friend nine months ago. When after all the shit he put me through after Christmas, I still took him back. That after he almost broke my heart a few months ago, we still became a couple.

The fear could be a fact. I may just be paranoid.

But like I told my friend Kane, even if there is a possibility that it will happen, it doesn't mean that I'll just give up and give him a reason to leave me.

I've been saying, he could be the one. Two months in, and nothing's changed. Scratch that. There is one thing: I love him more.

ganun ba talaga pag nakarelasyon mo mas bata sayo?
mahirap bang makipagrelasyon? mahirap bang mainlove?

The heart can only fathom what the mind thinks.

Sweet. Lucky Kid.

i hope that you refer to him as a "kid" only in your blog. he may be nineteen but i think, and most will agree, that age does not define the state of mind of someone.

trust, as in any relationship, is very much essential. but trust alone is not enough. put more faith in him. allow him to grow. i'm sure he will love you more for that.

at the end of the day, nothing is really that much permanent in this world and we only hope that with each transition we pass through, we leave our past knowing that we've done our part the best way that we can.

and that already is worth smiling for.

WIsh I had your courage. :)

canonista said...

Aww... CONGRATULATIONS! I'm praying for the strength that bind you both.

Pipo said...

I'm sure alam mo na 'to pero sasabihin ko na din. Give him the 'freedom' that he needs. At that age he's bound to 'explore' and 'learn'. But draw the line.

Pero as always kinikilig ako. Haha. Parang nararamdaman ko yung love mo sa kanya eh. I dunno but I'm overwhelmed. Hahaha <3

Stay the course, dear engel, and do not worry yourself into a wreck anticipating storms. They will come when they come and you'll just have to weather them.

Fair winds on this most interesting of journeys.

Engel,

We can never know the future, no matter how much we peer into the ball. We can only hope and I hope with you =)

there's no point in being in a relationship if you expect it to fail. live every day believing, knowing that you will be together for the rest of your lives. =)

wanderingcommuter said...

i-enjoy mo lang. sometimes, too much rationalizing leads to paranoia. then paranoia leads to something else. kaya dapat ineenjoy lang but of course, smart enjoyment.

soltero said...

stop overthinking stuff! just like what most commented, enjoy mo lang yang relasyon, huwag masyadong negatibo. lots of relationships flourish, not all end up in doom!

cheers! :P

Alterjon said...

if his sleeping disorder really was the case, then I am confident you can make him sleep forever.

TRUE love is a strong spell.
that only betrayal could break.
be cautious ;)


so far so good!

Jepoy Dacuycoy said...

ienjoy lang kung anong meron ngayon. bakit ba kasi ang advance mo magisip? negastar?

:)

the geek said...

yipee!!! cheers!!!

arkin said...

basta make him feel appreciated. and don't demand too much. dahil sa relasyon, ang estudyante, discounted din dapat ang expectations.

ok fine. ako na ang may pinaghuhugutan.
